A. To save energy and prevent excess pollution and waste. There has been amazing growth in the electronics industry over the last few decades. LG Electronics has benefited from that growth. But we realize that consumers are left with few options for disposal when their electronic products are broken, obsolete or unwanted. Recycling prevents usable parts from going into landfills, reduces the need for extraction or production of new materials and saves energy. So we see this as an opportunity to provide a service to our customers as well as a means to make our manufacturing more sustainable. LG Electronics is committed to responsible product stewardship; we think manufacturers should offer to take-back and recycle their own products, and our alliance with our recyclers allows us to do just that.
